The Peas in a Pod mini soft enamel pins are now live in The Goozeberry Jar Etsy shop! This is my first ever pin design so I’m pretty excited about them – what do you think?

The latest in my little animal dress-up/hybrid series. I plan to make these into prints or sticker sets in the near future (I want to do a couple more first) so keep an eye out in my shop for that! You can see the previous two designs here & here. Which animal is your favourite so far?

Happy Pride Season!

I’m still loving using markers instead of paint/coloured pencils – all of this except the skin colour of the two people on the left (tea) & the blue background (digital) is filled using marker pen. The coverage is way better & the colours pop more I think, & I do love my vibrant colours. I started off just getting a student set of them (Promarkers) a few months ago & since then I’ve bought quite a few individual ones to expand my range. Saving up for more!

Experimenting With Character Part 1

Marjoriebground-001

After about a month of being either too busy (with sewing), too distracted or just simply unmotivated to draw, it feels really good to finally have something new finished. This is the first part of a little character experiment, so keep an eye out for the second! I had a lot of fun doing this and I like the idea of maybe fleshing this one out a bit more in future.

I’ve got some really exciting plans for other bits and bobs this year so hopefully in the next few months I’ll be able to share a few of them with you too. Don’t forget you can follow me on Instagram here to keep up to date with my works in progress & just get a general sneaky look behind the scenes!

Pencil Case Prototype No.2

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Second pencil case experiment all finished! This is made out of some calico I dyed with redcurrants, & as soon as I saw the delicate colour I knew I wanted to do something floral. This design is actually inspired by the first piece of original embroidery I ever did (you can see that here), & it was a lot fun updating that (& adding sequins to it – but when are sequins not fun?!)

I have lots of ideas & plans for more of these, with the ultimate aim of getting the standard of my sewing & finish to a point where I would feel comfortable listing some original pieces in my Etsy shop. So keep an eye out for that!
